There will be refreshments available on site and taster sessions of different sports and activities on offer.

The screen is on throughout each competition until September 9.

AT New Forest WILDLIFE PARK...TINY tots can get up to their own animal antics with the opening of a new mini Go Wild! adventure playground just for them tomorrow.

It features swings, log jumbles, climbing ropes and spider nets.

Its larger counterpart, which has already opened is proving popular. Go Wild! features all the fun of an army-style assault course and is in sight of the nearby deer encounter enclosure and the grazing bison.

New Forest Wildlife Park also has otters, deer and owls, including the endangered giant otter, as well as lynx, foxes, wallabies, bison, wolves, wild boar, ferrets, polecats and a tropical butterfly house where you can watch pupae hatching into colourful butterflies plus a tearoom and gift shop.

AT BEAULIEU… FALCONRY displays take place all summer at the Cloisters, towards the back of the grounds, where guests can hear talks on the folklore of herbs and the monks who lived in the Abbey. Next to the Abbey is the Domus where Monk’s Tapestries hang from the wall with a small museum of them including a film room.

Tomorrow, take part in the Marie Curie Cancer Care Walk which begins at Beaulieu at 6.30pm and finishes at Buckler’s Hard with a fantastic fireworks display.

AT MARWELL WILDLIFE… LOOK out for the posters dotted around the park talking about the Zoolympics where guests can put themselves against record breaking animals and see how high, fast and far they can go!

Throughout the day, guests can hear various talks on the Meerkats, Giraffes, and penguins.
